A Glock 17 after having 378,000 rounds fired through it. Apparently the barrel broke only once (when it had fired the 378,000th round from the translation), and the firing pin spring and the recoil spring have been replaced once. This would be safe to fire after replacing the barrel. Pretty damn cool.
Hirtenberger make ammunition, among other things, so I’m assuming this was the gun they used to test 9x19mm rounds.
Because Pitbulls need love too.

This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said
“Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad)
I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.
You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.
